    About the surrounding area of Villa I Gigli

    Loading map

    Villa I Gigli is perched on a hill above a valley with breathtaking views of the rolling green hills and the town of Arezzo. The villa forms part of an agricultural estate and is therefore surrounded by forest and farmland. On site, a variety of organic products are made including wine, extra virgin olive oil and liqueurs. 

    Lying in the foothills of the Appenine Mountain Range, the ancient town of Arezzo spreads out across the fertile river valleys of the Arno, Tiber, Casentino, and Valdichiana. Just a 20 minute drive from the property Arezzo is a lovely medieval town with plenty of historical and cultural sites to visit and, of course, restaurants and shops. Renowned for its medieval architecture, with a spectacular old quarter, the town provided the setting for film “Life is Beautiful”. Shoppers will enjoy Arezzo's goldsmiths, jewellers, and antiques. Another one of the main attractions for visitors to Arezzo is San Francesco Church, Basilica San Francesco, which houses the famous Piero della Francesca frescoes.

    The villa makes a brilliant base for exploring the wider region and larger towns including Cortona, Florence, Siena and Montalcino which are all within easy reach.

    Owner Profile

    Property Owner
    Iacopo

    How long have you owned the property?
    More than 20 years

    What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
    I fell in love with the environment and the landscape

    Are there any interesting stories in its history?
    The farmhouse was bombed during the second world war, at that time the property belonged to an historical farm company of the area. The property has been used as farmland since 1290! Located near the old Etruscan aqueducts, Villa Lupo has really strong bonds with its ancient past. Nowadays we are a new wine company that won the regional prize as most innovative farm company of Tuscany and were selected as one of the 25 most beautiful Tuscan wineries. New and old methods come together for our Think Green project to improve the environment respecting man, wine and the land by re-ducing, re-cycling, re-using and above all Re-thinking.

    Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
    Some ;-) But they must remain a secret!

    For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...

    Really do?

    A wine tour!

    Really eat?
    Grifi, fegatelli, panzanella and ravioli

    Really see?
    Piazza Grande and Maec Museum in Cortona

    Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
    Perfect for wine lovers, foodies and people who love the environment. Our advice is to visit when not on a diet ;-)
